About IBA Dosimetry
IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) develops, manufactures and supports medical devices and software solutions for cancer treatment by proton beam therapy, for cancer diagnosis and for patient quality assurance (Dosimetry). In addition, the company partners with healthcare leaders to provide cancer clinics and academic health centers with a fully-integrated approach of the patient flow. IBA Dosimetry GmbH – as part of the Belgian IBA Group – is globally highly successful with more than 40 years of experience in the field of dosimetry for cancer treatment products. Based mainly in Schwarzenbruck, Germany, IBA Dosimetry also has offices in the U.S. and China.
IBA Dosimetry offers a full range of cutting edge innovative solutions and services that enable medical physicists and radiologists to maximize efficiency and minimize errors in Radiation Therapy, Medical Imaging Quality Assurance and Calibration procedures, and thereby increase treatment quality, safety, and efficiency for the patient.
Fastest, Most Accurate, Most Reliable
IBA Dosimetry has always been at the forefront of leading edge technology in radiation therapy QA. The original company founders were in fact the first to introduce a computerized water phantom to the market.
Since then the water phantom has evolved, and the Blue Phantom² is now the leading water phantom solution for radiation therapy beam scanning. The systems’ unique design facilitates faster and more accurate commissioning of RT treatment systems – so that patient treatments can begin much earlier and with high accuracy.
The latest Blue Phantom² is based on over 40 years of experience during which IBA Dosimetry has been providing high quality dosimetry equipment and services to more than 4,000 satisfied water phantom users worldwide.
Each unit of the Blue Phantom² is certified to provide a repositioning accuracy of better than 0.1 mm for the entire scan range.
Through the years, IBA has continued its legacy of developing and delivering many “firsts” and “innovations” to the dosimetry market. Another example is COMPASS, the first patient-based 3D plan verification system.
Just recently, IBA released myQA, a new global quality assurance platform that offers full support throughout all QA applications and provides the user access to their various software modules and data from one intuitive platform – anytime and anywhere.
The release of this highly anticipated solution marked a milestone for IBA Dosimetry as it is also a big step towards IBA’s vision in connecting its global users with each other.
Another pioneering, much anticipated solution is the Dolphin, the first and only online treatment measurement system that gives the user exact control over real delivered dose, fraction by fraction until the last fraction.
With these and other innovative solutions, IBA Dosimetry has proven to be a reliable partner in radiation therapy QA.

The International Competence Center (ICC) – providing exceptional training in a clinical environment.
The innovative International Competence Center (ICC) training facility was opened at the IBA Dosimetry headquarters in Schwarzenbruck, Germany in July 2012, and it is now one of the most modern and sophisticated training centers for Dosimetry with its state-of-the-art equipment and technology for hands-on trainings. The ICC is the first training center in the world where trainees can simulate treatment verification and quality assurance systems without patient traffic, in a facility that mirrors a real clinical environment. The aim of the ICC is to train healthcare professionals in using Radiation Therapy and Medical Imaging Dosimetry equipment safer and more efficiently. The training courses are held by renowned clinical speakers as well as by highly qualified IBA staff members, who not only provide participants with hands-on trainings, but also keep them updated about the latest news in Radiotherapy and Dosimetry. Apart from the trainings in the ICC facilities at the IBA Dosimetry headquarters, courses are offered in selected top-level clinics worldwide.
